Band List Additions 2

Thanks to word of mouth from among readers here at "The Other Side Of Nashville" blog, a slow trickle of email has begun, with long-lost friends contacting me about the project. Fans of various bands, or just fans of the local scene, have also been writing and reminding me of bands that I'd forgotten or overlooked. As such, I have added the below-listed artists to the "official" project list.

I'm still looking for recordings from Nashville-based bands, particularly Chip & the Chiltons and the Smashers. I plan on hitting some used vinyl stores like The Great Escape and Grimey's next weekend with a "wish list" of local music and see what I find. After all, the hunt is half the fun! I did find a copy of Royal Court Of China's Geared & Primed for a few dollars on eBay this week so I went ahead and grabbed it. I know that many people don't think much of this album, part of the band's "L.A." phase, but I thought that I'd give it a listen. The band's first A&M album was brilliant but, like usual, the label had no idea the quality of the band they'd signed -- they didn't sound like anyone else that I remember at the time -- so the label had to try and change them into Guns 'N' Roses. Oh well...here are the additions to our list (now 197 members strong).

AFTERDARK, BABY STOUT,
BE YOUR OWN PET, PAT BUCHANAN,
GLOSSARY, GO JIMMY DUB,
THE GROOVE KRICKETS, KIM'S FABLE,
PAPER DOLLS, SMOKELESS ZONE,
SWAN DIVE, VENUS HUM

Hey there:

For what it's worth I hosted the 14 year long "Nashville Tapes" on 103 WKDF (before it got kuntrified) for the last four years of the show and could help you locate some old recordings. I also have plenty of old interviews and stuff from back in the days (I am a nashville native) my name is Leslie and my email is southernscene@hotmail.com
